I have come to the conclusion that politicians live in a different world to the rest of us!! Take our poor old tired Premier Ghiz (he is 40) who just couldn’t manage to fulfill his term in office. He was too tired and needed to spend more time with his young family. Nice thing to do if you can afford not to go to work, something most young fathers have to do. Although he is staying on as premier until February 2015 he wont actually do any work, he is a sort of fictional premier. This is nice for the rest of his Cabinet because they now have the excuse not to do anything until a new leader is elected. A three billion deficit!!! no problem we will balance that in 2016 0r 17 0r 18 maybe. Just yesterday on the front page of the Journal was the statement from Ghiz, his biggest mistake was promoting fixed election dates. Wow!!! I must have been asleep at the wheel, fixed election dates eh!!! the whole island population must be talking about this absolutely crucial mistake. It will surely be the ruination of our island way of life. I guess I’m not paying enough attention! I thought making Wes Sheridan his minister of finance might have been the biggest mistake, or maybe the infamous HST. Perhaps hiring the defeated Alan Campbell on the night of the election over the air waves might have rated up there? Throwing people out of their homes so he could build a road no one wanted, should be considered. Unleashing the RCMP to arrest people who dared to protest the construction of Plan B might have been a mistake. I must be running wild here because more and more mistakes keep popping into my head, first class Air India flight, three pay raises in the last year, Whoa, I have to stop I’m losing sight of the big picture. Fixed election dates???? Yeah that really was a huge mistake, especially if you want to quit early. Nevertheless, as I sit here at my computer I can help but think that perhaps the biggest mistake of all was electing Robert Ghiz in the first place.
God Bless and keep reading Merry Christmas.
